BioCare Acidophilus provides lactobacillus acidophilus to maintain a healthy balance of intestinal microflora. Fructooligosaccharides (F.O.S.) when ingested, provide a specific food source for the growth of friendly intestinal bacteria.
Our digestive system is colonised by billions of bacteria and most of them are harmless. However, a favourable balance between the beneficial and the pathogenic bacteria must be kept to maintain a healthy system and its regular nature.
To help safeguard this balance, the use of capsules containing beneficial bacteria such as Lactobacillus acidophilus and Bifidobacterium bifidum is now an established practice.
